The media can no longer ignore
Obama and Hillary Clinton´s problems

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/16/2014 5:15:16 AM

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Of course they will ignore. It´s not just their job to do so; it´s a calling. If 0 stood at the podium in a clown costume juggling live hedgehogs, they´d say it was refreshing to see his innovative approach to public speaking.

All joking aside, it is pretty alarming when the President has checked out and appears to have lost his mind. He had access to some pretty scary stuff.

Obama has always been weird. He is just feeling less pressure to hide his malevolent, tormented personality. But far weirder than Obama are the people who voted for him in 2008 and then voted again for him after 4 years do incessant lies, incredible corruption, disastrous policies and blatant abuse of the public´s trust.

Hillary is more of the same, a malevolent person who is happiest when lying about her lies. She is a person who has willingly clung to the immoral and personally embarrassing coat tails of her husband to great wealth and undeserved fame while claiming she is the one woman capable of breaking the presidential glass ceiling.

If Obama is the King of Frauds, Hillary is its Queen in waiting. Sadly, too many Americans are willing to be their subjects,

For a narcissist, the response to disapproval is disengagement. Obama was OK as long as the people he hates disapproved. Now it´s becoming more obvious that a few liberals no longer adore him, so the wheels are coming off.

I guess when you hold the title "The Most Humiliated Woman in History", you figure you´ve got nothing to lose.

To all you liberal women and feminists out there, whose actions disgust you most, HIllary´s or Bill "Horn Dog" Clinton´s?

She was his doormat, he was her "beard". What disgusting examples of humanity. Uber-Grifters.

Love this article, and this most of all:

"Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment. And that would make history, too."

Perhaps a lot of liberal women admired Hillary Clinton in spite of her abused wife syndrome. Surely, however, after the Monica debacle was exposed, by the time the family took that press photo walk to the helicopter with Bill hanging his head and holding on to the dog while Hillary marched ahead looking triumphant...surely by then even the most ardent women´s rights supporting female would have understood that there ought to be a limit to what a woman should endure in pursuit of personal ambition, that there should be one humiliation too far. When Hillary Clinton still remained in the marriage, supportive and defending her husband in order to protect her ownpolitical future, I would have expected women across the country to be appalled.

A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks about NBA ratings and where he will live when he leaves. And having stopped being president, he has also stopped being presidential -- Politico reported last week of a rally, "So punchy was he that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to ´sit down´ and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. ... ´I don´t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,´ he said."

Am I the only one who sees this as impeachable? He is not faithfully executing the responsibilities of his job. In fact, he has chosen to retire while still in office, which leaves America without a President.

It has the same effect as being leaderless, so why has no one in positions of power seriously called this dereliction of duty?

We have one crisis, one failed policy after another, and POTUS is puttering and sputtering about being "called names".

Is he normal? Or do we have a mentally-deficient person in the White House? This isn´t funny. It´s life and death and we´ve got no President.

Not serious about doing the work of president

Dedicated to the transformation of our country from the myth of what I think he may actually believe it to be, some war mongering imperial doer of evil stealing from the third world to line our pockets.

beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job.

That reminds me of something I heard at a management seminar years ago about dealing with personnel problems.

Speaker said that if you are lucky, a problem employee will "quit and go." If you are unlucky, a problem employee will "quit and stay."

We are unlucky.

Truth is, many of us get our information thru the internet on Lucianne or Drudge or Breitbart, and by the time the MSM highlights some news story, we´ve already known about it for a couple days.

This article says that Politico called Obama "punchy", but we´ve already read about his inappropriate laughter and seen the pictures of him nodding off in meetings, so it´s old news to us.

The media would like to ignore some things, but they are not the only source of news anymore.

Think about this: obama has turned every allie we had against us, he does everything he can to assist our enemies. He has pretty much started race wars in this country. He has destroyed the health-care system and jobs across the country and countless other disasters.

Now, he suddenly lies back in the weeds and lets all of this fester with no leadership to be found. This is part of the plan, let the country now tear itself apart and send in the military to ´put down these radicals.´ It´s coming people.

#13, What some people might be be laying the foundation for with the increasing talk of Obama being delusional is not impeachment by rather the Vice President and senior cabinet members invoking Article 4 of the 25th Amendment. Impeachment means a finding of malfeasance, is usually lead by the opposition, and is highly divisive. The 25th Amendment is invoked by his own people and would be like an intervention, telling the President he seriously needs professional help. Who can be against removing a burden from a sick man and getting him help?

Of course the late-night hosts/comedians want Hillary to run for president. They need more material and Hillary has so much baggage (literally and figuratively) that they won´t even have to try to write their jokes. It´s all there right in front of them. As for Obama, he will provide everything necessary for years and years of jokes after he leaves office. The comedians can´t wait.

Obama has not quit. He just doesn´t do what a president is expected to do. He views his priorities differently than any previous president. He is a hardcore lefty who believes the United States is the reason for all the problems in the world, and needs to be torn down and remade. So far, he has been successful. If he had actually quit, congress would have moved in to fill the void that would have been left behind. He is working very hard at blocking congress from doing anything useful.

FTA: Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment.

Wouldn´t that be a sight!

FTA: The only girl and woman Hillary Clinton was ever concerned for was Hillary Clinton.

Yes. The masks hiding the essence of Obama and Hillary! have recently been lowered. What we see isn´t pretty. But it´s for real. The Nation, so long inured to political play acting, is beginning to shudder in belated recognition.

By his actions the president has effectively told us that he no longer wants to do the job to which he was elected. He´s bored, and just wants to hang loose taking pot shots at anyone who´s not giving him the requisite respect. But respect must be earned, and Obama has earned very little during his lifetime, least of all our respect.

Hillary! is fighting a losing battle pretending that she is a charitable, caring human being. Her cackling with boastful laughter about keeping a child rapist from doing hard time reveals a soul unconcerned with human decency. That, and her bare-faced lies to parents of the Benghazi Four ought to make her radioactive to an American electorate that by mow should have had a belly full of empty-souled leftist pols who feign decency every day. Eventually, the truth will out.

A letter from James Foley,

Marquette University Magazine, by James Foley    Original Article

Marquette University has always been a friend to me. The kind who challenges you to do more and be better and ultimately shapes who you become. With Marquette, I went on some volunteer trips to South Dakota and Mississippi and learned I was a sheltered kid and the world had real problems. I came to know young people who wanted to give their hearts for others. Later I volunteered in a Milwaukee junior high school up the street from the university and was inspired to become an inner-city teacher. But Marquette was perhaps never a bigger friend to me than when

In what might have appeared to be a minor political event a few weeks back, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called congressman Tom Marino (R-PA) “insignificant” and “inconsequential” in a debate on the House floor. Why would the former House Speaker insult a colleague in such a manner? She didn’t count her way to this assessment; Democrats do not hold a majority of the House. Nor did she reason her way to this position, as there was nothing in Rep. Marino’s argument on the immigration issue that raised empirical red flags. Perhaps it was a momentary lapse in judgment in the midst of

Quick question: Which uses more water, growing vegetables or hydraulic fracturing — i.e. fracking — to produce oil and natural gas? Ask that question of folks who work for the energy industry and odds are good they will quickly tell you agriculture consumes far more water than fracking. Ask that same question to activists trying to stop fracking and odds are good they will just as quickly respond with claims that fracking uses so much water that it threatens ground supplies. The right answer, according to a recent study done for the Western Energy Alliance, found that fracking in states

Foreign policy successes have been rare for the current White House so it was surprising this week to see President Barack Obama take something of a victory lap over the apparent success of efforts to beat back Islamic radical advances in Iraq. But it certainly made sense for the president to take satisfaction where he could because beyond that small victory, Obama´s presidency seems disconnected and directionless. Obama made his remarks on Iraq during a brief break from his Martha´s Vineyard vacation. But instead of looking rested, the president appeared fatigued and frustrated, particularly over the continued clashes between police and

Jason Carter is willing to say pretty much whatever it takes to win.

"No justice, no peace,” scream protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. Implicit in this menacing chant is that the rioting on display there for over a week has been justified. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, among other hucksters, disclaim the violence, even as they stoke it with reckless rhetoric. They aren’t interested in peace but power. Were they truly opposed to the violence, they wouldn’t coin chants that condone it. “We’re not looters. We’re liberators,” says Sharpton. Liberating society from what? The rule of law? His view of justice is that the law be permanently suspended for the racially aggrieved. A police department

LAS VEGAS — Harry Reid’s reelection is more than two years off, but the Koch brothers’ political machine is already methodically laying the groundwork that will be used to try to take him out. The efforts in recent months have been largely subterranean, but they are unmistakable. A handful of nonprofit groups in the vast political network helmed by allies of the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch have established or expanded permanent ground operations in Reid’s backyard. Focused on wooing key demographics like Latinos and veterans, they’ve also paid for ads assailing the Senate Democratic leader. Reid, meanwhile, is ramping up

No one wants to smell like Eau de Brat. Perfume giant Elizabeth Arden blamed pop singers Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift for stinking up financial results in the latest quarter. Arden’s stock tanked nearly 25 percent on Tuesday after the company cited a worse-than-expected slide in its celebrity fragrance business — namely, two of its biggest stars. “The decline in sales of celebrity fragrances, particularly the Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift fragrances, was steeper than anticipated,” the company said in a statement. Sales for the quarter ended June 30 fell 28.4 percent from last year to $191.7 million after it introduced fewer new fragrances

It was ridiculous and wrong for police snipers to train their weapons on peaceful protestors in Ferguson. But, when you get right down to it, the militarization of police has had basically nothing to do with events there, even though the Left and parts of the Right have wanted to make that the main issue. When Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown, the officer was presumably wearing a typical police uniform and driving a typical police car. He either acted in entirely justifiable self-defense, made a catastrophic misjudgment after an altercation, or (in the extreme version of the protestors) shot Brown

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

Beckley, WV - Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. “It’s been a good deal worse than even I expected,” Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.” Mr. Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population.
